On 21 January 2015 I visited Peter Rich
in the Kaiser rehab center in San Leandro.
For those of you who don't know,
Peter had a stroke.
I found out about it when his daughter Julie called on 11 January.
I visited Peter in Kaiser Oakland on 12 January.
OK. His left side is somewhat paralyzed. (His left leg
collapsing was one of the symptoms that got him to
the hospital.) His speech is pretty good considering the
left side of his mouth isn't working. He reported that it
was a clot as opposed to a bleed. He doesn't seem to
be losing words and his sense of humor is intact."
I visited Peter in San Leandro on the 21st. It was noon
and lunch was served. Peter fed himself. After lunch,
two physical therapists came and wrassled him into a
wheelchair. I left as he was weeled into the gym.
His spirits were good, he made little jokes. He is getting
some muscle action in his left arm and leg - the therapists
get him to push and he does a little.
I shot a little
of the therapists assisting him into the wheelchair.
Peter said I could post it as long as he gets paid,
so the royalties all go to Peter.
